Swallowed button battery burns hole in toddler’s esophagus
VERNON, Conn. -- Connecticut parents are issuing a warning about button batteries in children’s toys after their 18-month-old swallowed one, leading to serious damage in the baby’s body. In December, when Cameron was playing with his toys, mom Marisa Soto's instincts kicked in. "He looked OK kind of, you could tell he was in discomfort and something was wrong but it look like he probably had a sore throat," she told WTIC.
